7:13 am
we are having crystal clear sky in san francisco, beautiful start to the day there, and spring training officially in full swing. the giants will open cactus league play against the angels at scottsfield stadium but the cactus league is not the only way to get your baseball fix between now and the start of the regular season. the world baseball classic will happen throughout the spring with semifinals and finals head at at&t park next month. "today in the bay's" lawrence scott is with the giants in arizona and he spoke with some of the players including today's starter, ryan vogelsong, about the honor it will be to represent their home countries. >> reporter: spring training in scottsdale goes well beyond the cactus league games as the opening rounds of the world baseball classic began just over a week from now. the semifinals and finals will be held at at&t park in the
7:14 am
middle of march. ten players total in the giants organization representing their various home nation's teams with jeremy affeldt and ryan vogelsong on team usa. >> it would be nice to win this because the u.s. hasn't won it yet, it would be cool to be a part of the first u.s. team to win the tournament, so i'm excited about it. >> reporter: giants outfielder angel pagan is taking part with the puerto rican national team. >> i'm representing my country as well as the giants organization and i just want to be the best i can be out there but we are losing the focus on what are we trying to accomplish as a team to go out there and win another championship. >> reporter: keep an eye out for the new batting helmets throughout the season. safety and a good fit the considerations and no longer hard plastic. these helmet shells are made out of an aerospace grade carbon fiber composite. >> they're hard, feel like they'll protect much more, they're more compact and hopefully it's a good answer for
7:15 am
us to be safe. >> reporter: lawrence scott, "today in the bay." >> i like those new helmets. manager bruce botchy announcing tim lincecum will be penciled in the number three spot in the giants rotation. barry zito will most likely pitch the home opener in game four against the cardinals. matt caine will be on the mound on opening day. for the first time in 140 years an oakland waterway is open to boaters. mayor gene quan gave the signal for a parade of boats to start down a recently opened channel at lake merit. the 507-foot panel was dammed up in the mid 1800s. the city removed the dam as part of a bond measure passed ten years ago. in a few years the city plans to knock down other dams so voters can travel all the way to the oakland estuary. >> historically the open estuary was full connection here to lake merit, and so that will improve not only the recreational
7:16 am
opportunities both for boats and for the pads down there, but again it's a big improvement in water quality. >> the city will kick off the next phase of the dam demolition in just a few months and it is expected to take three years to open up the channel to the estuary. another celestial wonder for californians, this time southern californians got a green fireball streaking across the night sky last night. this is a picture taken by a photographer at the southern california weather authority. experts think the mass of the meteor that caused this bright light was likely no larger than a basketball. just a week ago people across the bay area were captivated by this fireball. person driving down south on 280 posted this video of that light show. that sure had a lot of people talking. got to love it. the weather guys are always looking up at the skies. >> anything coming from outer space occasionally. it happens in clear skies. typically this time of year you
7:17 am
have a lot of clouds which ruin the view of some of the rare events we're seeing over the skies of the bay area. right now a pretty view in san jose. we still have the clouds bancke up on the eastern end of the santa clara county, out towards mt. hamilton it's covered in clouds, light rain there and the sunshine over sunol, the roads are wet there. we had enough light rain to wet the ground there on 60 past the sunol grade and san francisco looking nice. if you're waking up this morning and wondering why the road is a little damp we did have light rain in san francisco but look at how quickly the clouds pick up as the winds pick up, dry things out and give us a sunny finish to the day. 47 degrees in san francisco, 50 in oakland, 47 in san jose as well, and you can see we have these 40s to low 50s this morning because most of the night, we had cloud cover and a little bit of drizzle at times. notice the winds picking up, west-northwest and we will see the winds 10 to 25 miles per hour this afternoon, taking the clouds and the moisture that we had at the low levels and
7:18 am
pushing it off to the south and east. you can see a few sprinkles near mt. hamilton east of san jose. satellite view shows you the boundary of the weather system. it was fairly weak and most of it heading east of the sierra but it took what little moisture we had and just wringed out a little bit of raindrops overnight. now we can see clearing skies and high pressure off to the west, the deeper moisture surging up to the pacific northwest. this high off the west will be a wall in the pacific that no storms will be able to reach the bay area over the next few days. clearing skies today, west-northwest winds picking one some cool sunshine, should see highs mainly in the 50s and tomorrow we'll see the numbers coming up a few extra degrees. today close to 60 in san jose, upper 50s toward livermore and near 60 degrees in fairfield, some of the warmer places around the trivalley near low 60s. the best bet of finding those low to mid-60s will be around santa rosa as the winds pick up out of the northwest and help to dry out the air and warm things up for the afternoon. the trend for the weekend,
7:19 am
drizzle shutting down. we'll see a dry finish to the weekend, a little bit warmer as we get into sunday. if you like warming temperatures here by february into early march standards, you're going to find it by the second half of the seven-day forecast. you can see 60s, maybe even some low 70s. this will be passing wednesday, thursday, and friday, and while the weather is nice, everyone appreciates a nice sunny day while your relatives on the east coast deal with snow, and now we're getting through two months, the two key months of snowpack building for the sierra and rainfall in the bay area, still looking quite dry. it's nice to get the sun but we need rain and snow to come on back. >> grandma visiting from new york is not complaining about the weather. thank you very much, rob. coming up on "today in the bay," one woman's mission to save thousands of animals and find them new homes. it is a story that will make you bay area proud.

hen hasn't had to euthanize a rabbit in close to ten years. >> there you go. >> reporter: and they won't be starting today. >> hi, kathy it's marsie from save-a-bunny. >> reporter: marsie wasn't always a bunny's best friend. she was an advertising and marketing executive for years. it wasn't until she burned out though on the corporate track that she landed on the bunny trail. >> i've always loved animals, but i didn't really picture this being a career. it's okay. >> reporter: it started by falling in love with a species after fostering just one. >> they're way smarter than people think. they're super intelligent, they're very opinionated. >> reporter: but the more marsie appreciated them, the more she felt the rest of the world didn't. too many unwanted rabbits, too many abused rabbits, too few resources, particularly when compared to those given to dogs and cats. >> they are truly the underdogs
7:24 am
and i have always had a thing for helping the underdog in my life. and they desperately need help. >> reporter: so marsie started saving them and she couldn't stop. she says she has never worked longer, never worked harder. marsie is constantly managing the flow of rabbits among shelters, foster homes and her own basement, and any one time there are 150 rabbits in the save-a-bunny network. over the life of the group, they've spared some 5,000 rabbits their lives. >> it's both heart-breaking and it's hopeful, depending on the day. he came from a big breeder confiscation in santa cruz. when he got here, he could barely raise his head. >> reporter: marsie says it can be at times overwhelming. as hard as she tries, she can't possibly save them all. but not trying wouldn't save a single one.

7:28 am
the radar is looking fairly quiet except around mt. hamilton where some of the clouds are banked up on the east side of santa clara county this morning. notice the temperatures, 40s to near 50 and the winds will pick up, one of the reasons why our skies are clearing out setting us up for an afternoon that will be breezy but dry, mostly sunny as the clouds thin out, upper 50s to near 60 today and the seven-day forecast does bring a chance of 60s and 70s, not 60% to 70% chances of rain but temperatures, we'll show you that and if that's going to impact tomorrow's forecast coming up in a few minutes. >> thank you, rob, see you in a bit. new insight this morning into why pope benedict may be stepping down. the respected italian newspaper reports the pope made the decision after getting the results of an internal investigation into scandal at the vatican. among the things reportedly exposed in the 300-page report, blackmail, corruption and sex at the vatican. the newspaper says the pope
7:29 am
ordered the investigation last may after his butler was arrested. the pope plans to personally hand over the report to his successor. meantime there is a mounting pressure in the u.s. and italy to keep cardinal roger mahoney away from the conclave to choose the next pope because of his role in shielding sexually abusive priests. the associated press is reporting that italian newspapers have profiled cardinals whose presence at the conclave would be "an embarrassment to the vatican." among them are irish cardinal sean brady, and belgian cardinal godfried daniels. the cardinals that will elect the next pope are said to be more conservative than the ones that elected pope benedict back in 2005. the pope has hand picked more than half of the cardinals who will elect his successor. the rest were chosen by john paul ii. both men shared a determination to reassert a more conservative
7:30 am
catholicism. as for the next pope, cardinal theodore mccarrick says the conclave will elect the right person for the job. >> you're not going to go for your buddy or nationalists or someone you think will do you a favor or give you more auxiliaries or something like to. you're voting, you should be voting for a man you think god wants to govern and serve the church at this time. >> the pope is expected to officially step down next week. the obama administration is urging the supreme court to strike down the federal law on same-sex marriage benefits. the white house filed paperwork arguing that the 1996 defense of marriage act or doma is unconstitutional. the law denies same-sex couples legally married under state law a number of important federal benefits like social accurate survivor benefits and family medical leave protections

"today in the bay's" stephanie tuong has the emotional homecoming. >> all right? >> um-hum. >> are you? >> i'm all right. >> reporter: it lasted just a few seconds but the hug shared between mom and son was the first outside jail in courtroom walls. then ronald ross disappeared ready to start fresh. just an hour earlier ronald walked out of jail, his 2006 attempted murder conviction overturned at last. the anger he once harbored no longer in his life. >> since god talked to me, he blessed me to be free again. >> we knew. >> we knew. >> reporter: randy harvey had
7:32 am
tears in his eyes as he described the frustration of trying to tell police ronald had been with him during the shooting. >> i had some investigators come to my house and basically call me a liar, but me and her knew. >> reporter: it took a four-year investigation by a san francisco law firm, a private investigator and the northern california innocence project to free ronald, who faced 25 years to life behind bars. >> he was released, so it's truly a rewarding, wonderful thing to be able to do. >> reporter: there are serious allegations that the oakland police sergeant in charge of the investigation not only did shoddy work but showed the shooting victim six photos and told him to pick ross' picture out of the line-up. they requested all materials from an off site storage and will have an update next week. >> happy day for me. >> reporter: for mom and son, they're cherishing what's to come. >> he said we're going to be all right, mama and i'm quite sure
7:33 am
it will be all right because the lord let me live to see him get out. >> that was stephanie truong reporting. ross is originally from louisiana and he says he will be taking a much needed vacation there to see his four adult children. this morning, a former actor and theater eacher jason pedroza is facing chilz molestation charges. police in pleasant hill began investigating the 27-year-old san bruno san after getting tips he engaged in sex acts with underaged girls. police believe the alleged crimes occurred while he was working with the center repertory in walnut creek. he also worked as a ballet school, so now police are urging anyone who might have had contact with pedroza to contact them. a san jose railroadworker says it is amazing that he is still alive. he survived a terrible accident when a 39-foot steel track
7:34 am
smashed into his back and nearly killed him. now he is suing cal train. jose is alazha says he doesn't remember exactly what happened in november when the almost 1,800-pound section of steel track hit him and pinned him to the ground. he and his co-workers were fixing a damaged section of rail north of the south san francisco cal train station when his fellow officers somehow lost control while lifting that steel track. salazar was in a coma for about a month. he suffered a fractured skull, a broken back, broken ribs and a punctured lung. on his birthday, the san jose railroadworker woke up. >> the rest, what happened for a couple months, i didn't know anything until i wake up. >> salazar is suing cal train for not providing a safe work environment. the agency cannot comment on pending litigation. on his way to get a marriage
7:35 am
license an off-duty police officer from san jose sprung into action,' rested a robber on a bar train. >> i hear a woman screaming he's got my purse, help me, help me, other passengers are trying to intervene but this person is defeating their measures. someone started to try to tase him and that didn't work. if you've done law enforcement long enough it's in your blood. you're not going to watch someone get hurt or victimized and stand by and do nothing. >> the sergeant frederick coto intervened and was able to physically detain the suspect until uniformed officers arrived. he never got off the bar train though because he and his fiance had an appointment to get that marriage license. he says it's probably his last arrest since he's about to undergo his fifth knee surgery which will most likely force him to retire. what a shame. a gun buy-back event spear-headed by two bay area fathers is taking place on the peninsula. protect our children has raised more than $30,000 for today's
